Thank You…

For purchasing Triad's line of high performance
inwall speakers.


Each loudspeaker is created with the utmost
attention to quality and designed to be
architecturally flexible with your room decor.


All Triad speakers are engineered and hand-crafted
with pride in the United States of America.


Please take the time to review this information.
We have developed this manual so you would be
familiar with all the performance features, and
could better appreciate the superb engineering that
has been built into your Triad loudspeakers.


At Triad we build only fully engineered loudspeakers
with sealed back-boxes. We believe you will enjoy
the rich natural music in the rooms you have
selected for our speakers, and the quiet in the
adjoining rooms, where the sealed enclosure
prevents unintended transmission of the sound.


Thanks again and happy listening.

                               Tools you'll need:
                                 Power Screw Driver or Hammer
                                 Wire Strippers
                                 Level
                                 Pencil or Pen
                               Supplies you'll need:
                                 Triad (NCB) New Construction Bracket
                                 Screws or Nails for attaching NCB to studs
     16 inch on center studs



                               Step One - Mark
                               Locate the area where the speaker will be placed
                               on the stud wall keeping in mind that the speaker
                               when installed will take up the full wall cavity
                               within the NCB location (i.e. free from electrical
                               wires, water pipes, etc.).

                               Position the bracket between the desired two
      To Amplifiers            studs. Take special note of the location, of the
                               direction arrows silk screened to the inside of the
                               bracket. As you face the wall these arrows should
                               be facing into the room.

                               With the level resting on top of the NCB make
                               sure the bracket’s top is level and mark with
                               pencil, the location where the NCB touches the
                               studs.
                               Step Two - Attachment
                               Re-check NCB alignment with marks from step
                               one, and attach screws through attachment holes
                               on NCB. Re-check squareness and adjust if
                               necessary.
Step Three - Wire
Attach the wires from the source to the speaker.
You're done! Now the sheet rock people can sheet rock directly to the NCB for
a clean look. When you're ready to install the speaker, refer to step two of the
“Retro-fit Installation” section of this manual.
                                                                                    5


Retro-fit Installation
  Tools you'll need:
    #2 Philips Hand or Power Screw Driver
    Drywall Knife/Saw
    Wire Strippers
    Stud finder
    Level
    Pencil or Pen

  Supplies:
    Scrap cardboard or foam – for 6" deep walls
    InWall Speaker enclosure from Triad




Step One - Locate (how to find an open stud cavity)
Locate the area where the speaker will be placed in the wall keeping in mind
that the speaker when installed will take up the full wall cavity (i.e. free from
wires, pipes, insulation etc.).

Use the stud finder to locate the two studs between which you wish to install
the speaker. Make a small hole in the wall (about 3/32") centered between the
two studs and insert a straightened coat hanger end bent so it has a seven inch
extension which can be spun in the fourteen inch opening between the studs. If
you don’t encounter any wires or pipes as you rotate the coat hanger you
probably can install the speaker in the wall.

Using the speaker box as a guide, mark the outline on the wall with pencil.
Adjust for squareness and cut along outlined mark
with a drywall knife/saw slowly, trying not to chip out the drywall excessively.

Step Two - Wire
Take the inwall speaker box and loosen the 4 black Philips screws attached to
the 4 silver retro brackets so the bracket can slide out of the holes in the top
and bottom of the speaker. Next, remove the 4 long black Philips screws.
These screws will be used to hold the frame to the speaker box. Keep the screws
& frame (without grill insert) close by, you'll need them soon.

Attach your speaker wires to the Triad speaker enclosures wire or binding posts.
Remember the red is positive and black is negative.

Retro-fit Installation




Step Three - Attachment
With the speaker wires attached, place the box inside the wall cavity and slide
the retro brackets out and tighten the retro screws.



Please note: when placing a 4 inch box into a 6 inch wall
the box will have a tendency to want to fall backwards
into the wall. To avoid this, try taping a scrap piece of foam or cardboard (2"
thick) to the back side of the speaker box.

Attach the grill frame to the speaker box using the (4) long black screws. The
frame will sandwich the sheet rock between the frame and the retro brackets,
holding the speaker in the wall. Be sure not to over-tighten the frame screws to
avoid bending the aluminum grill frame.

Finally, attach the Acoustimesh grill to the frame starting with the bottom
working your way up, pressing it into the channel carefully.

From the volume control, "Y" the speaker wires so that one set goes to the
Satellites, and the other set goes to the Triad PowerSub amplifier through
a converter. You may only "Y" one channel if you wish to limit deep bass
by using the Theater input on the Triad PowerSub amp.
